Implants Should Feel Like Your Own Teeth
In today’s world, crowns and bridges made on dental implants should look and feel like your own teeth. Dental implants are a routine part of modern dentistry – no longer considered “experimental” or even “new.” Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. The dental implant procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, but also is considered a form of cosmetic dentistry.
People who have lost teeth might feel too self-conscious to smile or talk. By replacing missing tooth roots, dental implants provide people with the strength and stability required to eat all the foods they love, without struggling to chew. Additionally, dental implants stimulate and maintain jaw bone, preventing bone loss and helping to maintain facial features.
In traditional fixed bridges, the teeth adjacent to a missing tooth were ground down and covered with crowns in order to support the false tooth (pontic) in between them. A dental implant used to replace a missing tooth is a more conservative, less invasive, more durable and more natural and comfortable alternative.
Implants improve your appearance, your speech, the ability to enjoy your favorite foods, your comfort and your self-esteem.
